I have a Mac OS X Server (10.4.9)

I'd like to change the port that the FTP server listens on - where can I do this?  I think my ISP is blocking port 21.

There are no clear articles I can find on changing the FTP Port under OSX Server 10.4 .. I can only find ones for 10.2 and 10.3.

The in-built FTP Server is not very flexible anyway. You should consider switching off the OSX FTP server and use this one!!  I've found it so much more powerful, flexible and easy to use/configure.
